Muamba could make playing return

Fabrice Muamba has not ruled out a return to football despite suffering cardiac arrest on the pitch and subsequently ending his career on medical advice, the BBC has reported.

Muamba collapsed during Bolton Wanderers’ FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane earlier this year. His heart stopped for 78 minutes. Muamba spent a month in hospital and was later advised by doctors to retire from playing.

The former England U-21 international’s career saw him start as a youth team player with Arsenal and later join Birmingham City. From there he moved to Bolton and in total played more than 150 league games, and helped Birmingham to promotion to the Premier League from the Championship.

While Muamba is heeding the advice of his medical team, he did not rule out making a return to football in the future if the doctors signed off on the idea. He said: “Maybe in two years, if I go for a check-up and my heart rhythm comes back to normality, we'll see if anyone wants to take me on.

If it comes back to normality, we'll see what the specialist says regarding me playing again. But at this present moment, I just have to take it easy and spend time with my family.
